Among all Android device brands, Xiaomi can be said to be one of the most popular ones. Especially the Redmi Note series is sought after in the market. However, no matter what the brand, data loss is still inevitable. So, there are two issues that the majority of users are more concerned about:

Can we recover deleted photos from MI Phone?

Losing or deleting photos is a prevalent situation. Sometimes it's because the user accidentally pressed the delete button by mistake. Sometimes, viruses, water damage, and system upgrades may cause smartphone data loss. So, once the beloved photos are gone, do we still have a chance to retrieve them? The answer is yes. In fact, the deleted photos do not disappear from your phone immediately, and they are just marked as invisible by the system. If you use a professional data recovery tool, you can find and restore them effortlessly.

Where are deleted photos in Redmi?

The deleted photos are actually still in your Redmi phone, but they are set to be invisible, so you can't see them. The places where these photos were previously saved are also marked as available by the system. If you receive new data at this time, these places will be occupied, those deleted photos will be overwritten by the new data, and you will lose the opportunity to recover them back.

Therefore, it is vital that once you find that the data is lost, please stop using your phone immediately and use a professional Xiaomi data recovery software as soon as possible to help you recover the deleted data from Xiaomi/Redmi.
